I've always been a reader of Erin MacLeod's articles in The Montreal Mirror, Pitchfork or Fader. After she mentionned that she was dreaming about a kwaito/2-step party, we decided it was time to contact her. After playing at Cagibi with Guillaume for Mundial, she came to the Masala radio show last week to play kwaito she brought back from her trip in South Africa.

Erin MacLeod is also a teacher and a student at McGill University. She's doing her doctorate on ethiopians perceptions of the rasta movement. She traveled Ethiopia for five months for her research and that's when she had the opportunity to go to Durban, SA, to give a conference on dancehall.
